That moment when you are on terminal, you highlight text and press Ctrl+C, only to realize you have terminated a running job that was 90% complete.

    Most CLIs I've used all have different syntax for copying and pasting. It frustrates me so much cuz shit like this happens.

    Go hardcore - use putty for a week and you'll get ctrl+c out of your muscle memory.

    That's why I remapped it...ctrl + c copies and ctrl+shift+c terminates....

    @hyperdrifter - no, we want consistency in shortcuts. Why need different shortuct for every app?! it is super annoying. Most of apps use ctrl+C and now why the fuck this shit linux has to stop script and also print new line and not even copy a text !? I am using xubuntu 18 and they did not learn yet.
